Sonnette offers a fresh take on some of the more standard roller shade options available through Hunter Douglas, with an innovative cellular design that provides enhanced energy efficiency. The options are endless in terms of colors and patterns, but there are also customization options in the operating systems as well:

Here in Minnesota, we experience weather extremes, hot and humid in the summer, and of course freezing and dry in the winter. Custom window treatments provide many benefits beyond looking beautiful, and here in Minnesota, we can use all the help we can get in the energy saving department.
Hunter Douglas, is an industry leader in making a big energy savings difference at the window. In 1985, they invented the highly energy-efficient Duette® honeycomb shades in response to the energy crisis of the late 1970s, and many designs, including Sonette(R) have emerged based on that original design goal. Without energy-efficient window treatments, as much as 50% of a home's heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows.
